Houston Texans veteran quarterback Jeff Garcia is doing his best to put himself in Terrell Owens' shoes.
In a matter of speaking, the 41-year-old Garcia knows the situation of his former San Francisco 49ers teammate all too well.
After Owens announced that he's going to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, Garcia was reminded of his 2010 days with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.
"Maybe this is his way of showing he can go back to the grassroots of the game, in a sense," Garcia told NFL.com. "Even though it's a little bit different game, (he can) go back to where you're not really doing it for the money, but doing it for the love of the game, and show that he is still capable physically of playing the game and, most importantly, ready from a maturity standpoint to be that guy who can come in and help a team and help the young guys."
The 38-year-old Owens has accepted an offer from the Wranglers that includes part ownership of the team.
